We have some excellent news for you today!

Thai AirAsia X, a popular low cost airline in Asia, is considering expansion to Eastern Europe!

Thai AirAsia X is now considering the launch of services to Eastern Europe in 2017, resulting in an even more balanced hub for AirAsia at Bangkok Don Mueang airport.

The airline considers cheap low-cost flights from Thailand to Budapest, Prague and Warsaw according to Thai AirAsia CEO Tassapon Bijleveld.

Eastern Europe is a relatively large, but underserved, inbound market for Thailand. There would also be opportunities to offer connections within Asia, on Thai AirAsia, to Thai AirAsia X passengers flying in from the Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland.

Over the past two years Thai AirAsia has had several successful experiments with secondary bases and point-to-point routes – both domestic and international. The airline will continue to pursue opportunities from secondary gateways but at the same time strategically needs to continue growing the Bangkok hub. With the Bangkok-China market relatively saturated and highly competitive, India and Eastern Europe are attractive options.

Hopefuly these plans will be transformed into reality in 2017 and passengers from the Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland will be able to enjoy eagerly awaited cheap flights to South-East Asia.
